"If you read Embraced, you will be captured by the engaging and poignant stories that Mark Buchanan tells. They are stories of weakness and strength, pain and joy, despair and hope. You will sense that you too can find life and hope in the embrace of God. I cannot recommend this incisive and spiritually deep book too enthusiastically."
--Stephen T. Davis, Russell K. Pitzer Professor of Philosophy, Claremont McKenna College
"Drawing on decades of pastoral experience, Mark Buchanan offers a creative doorway into the theological work of Jurgen Moltmann. Simultaneously challenging and inspiring, this book displays the theological depth of the stories that animate our lives."
--Matthew D. Lundberg, Associate Professor of Theology, Department of Religion, Calvin College
"Mark Buchanan has written a beautiful book that bridges the gap between the hopeful theology of Jurgen Moltmann and real life experiences. Embraced is not an abstract theological work for scholars; it is a raw and authentic reflection for pilgrims 'on the way' who, like Buchanan and like Moltmann himself, are seeking to walk with Jesus on the way to His future and our universal future in Him."

"From the first day Pastor Mark walked into my graduate seminar on Moltmann's theology a few years ago, I could tell how deep his appreciation and passion for the German Theological Master's thought is. From the first page of the manuscript draft he gave me to read, I could tell how skillfully and creatively he is able to weave constructive theological ideas into the fabric of every day pastoral narratives. What a feast this book is!"
